Fibromyalgia: Multiple symptoms unrelated. Fifth digit numbness suggests ulnar nerve entrapment. Neck and shoulder could be poor position or neck muscles strain. Sciatic pain- poor position, muscle strain fibromyalgia, disc bulge. Eye twitch- too much caffeine, poor sleep, stress or eye straining. Check with your physician for proper diagnosis and treatment. Hope you feel better soon.
